Gollant Auctioneers & Valuers is committed to maximising your returns through auction sales. Bringing over 25 years of experience to every auction sale, we understand your market and how best to achieve optimal results.
Whether you are closing your business or simply wanting to convert superfluous or redundant assets into cash, we can conduct an on-site auction to realise those assets. Alternatively, we can remove the assets from your premises and hold the auction off-site if that better suits your requirements. We will manage the auction process end to end. Our team will conduct the asset valuations, assist with setting realistic expectations, catalogue asset lots for sale, lay out the assets for sale, target potential buyers and manage view/sale/delivery days.
We will develop a marketing plan tailored to the industry and assets being sold. The plan will maximise exposure to potential buyers through extensive advertising and direct marketing (via phone, text, email, flyer and online platforms).
Our auctioneers are highly skilled and trusted professionals with a passion for results! Utilising their extensive auction experience together with industry knowledge allows us to achieve maximum asset realisation values. We act with integrity at all times and adhere to professional and ethical standards.
